“I think the reason that I received this scholarship, and the reason that I’ve gotten so involved with broadcast journalism, really ties back to all of the professors and faculty in USD’s media and journalism department. Without their support and guidance, I never would have gotten involved with Coyote News, and my college experience would be so different,” said Serie, who is from Mitchell, S.D.

Serie has been involved in broadcast media since her freshman year working behind the scenes at Coyote News. She has continued her participation in Coyote News by serving as live correspondent, head anchor, and now co-producer of the weekly broadcast. In addition to her experience with Coyote News, Serie has interned with South Dakota Public Broadcasting and KELOLAND News.

The BEA will hold a convention in Las Vegas on April 12-15 that will include a scholarship award ceremony. Serie and her family plan on traveling to Las Vegas for the ceremony and convention. She will also have the opportunity to attend the National Association of Broadcasters national career fair on April 15.

“I’m looking forward to attending some of the seminars and learning more about the media industry and interacting with media professionals,” Serie added. Download a photo of Serie.
